The Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) is today set to conclude interviewing ex-president Peter Mutharika over the alleged abuse of his tax-free privilege.

The interrogation is part of an investigation into how Mutharika’s Taxpayer Identification Number (TPIN) was accessed and abused by his close aides during his tenure.

On Wednesday and Thursday last week, Malawi Revenue Authority (MRA) officials separately questioned the former president on aspects surrounding alleged evasion of tax.

Mutharika’s former chief of staff Peter Mukhito and security aide Norman Chisale are believed to have imported cement worth millions using Mutharika’s TPIN.

Earlier attempts by the ACB to interview Mutharika were frustrated first by his decision to snub the process, and later by reports that he was feeling unwell.
